Following the mass vaccinations against pandemic influenza A/H1N1 virus in 2009, a sudden increase in juvenile onset narcolepsy with cataplexy (NC) was detected in several European countries where AS03-adjuvanted Pandemrix vaccine had been used. NC is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. In human NC,(More)
Bacteriophage Mu uses DNA transposition for propagation and is a model for transposition studies in general. Recent identification of Mu-like prophages within bacterial genomes offers new material for evolutionary and comparative functional studies. One such prophage, Hin-Mu of Haemophilus influenzae Rd, was studied for its transpositional properties. The(More)
Bacteriophage Mu uses non-replicative transposition for integration into the host's chromosome and replicative transposition for phage propagation. Biochemical and structural comparisons together with evolutionary considerations suggest that the Mu transposition machinery might share functional similarities with machineries of the systems that are known to(More)
